A couple weeks ago, I was alerted on Twitter to the fact that comedian Sarah Colonna was a “Bachelor” fan and also a fan of the site, so I decided now was a good time to bring her on. You know my love for stand up comedy if you’ve been following me for any amount of time, so I will always jump at the chance to talk to comedians because of how much I respect their craft. We cover Sarah’s career from moving to LA after being in Arkansas her whole life to make it in the business, her rise in stand up, writing two books, getting hired by Chelsea Handler, all the way to how she met her current husband (Seattle Seahawks punter John Ryan). Hint: it was very similar to how the “Bachelor” guys meet other people from the franchise. Then we spend a good 30 minutes talking about everything having to do with Arie’s season, including what great television we’re going to get next week in the finale. So yes, there will be spoilers talked about in this podcast since Sarah is definitely spoiled this season. You’ve been warned. As always, if you’d like to reply to the interview, please include Sarah’s Twitter handle (@sarahcolonna) in your replies so she can see them. A very fun almost-2-hour conversation with a very funny woman. Hope you enjoy it…
